Why do you recommend charities? Not all charities are made the same. One of the best ways to help people give effectively is to provide suggestions of charities that have been rigorously demonstrated to be impactful, cost-effective, and transparent. When you donate to one of our recommended charities, you can be sure that your donation will go to the people who need it most. We also provide succinct overviews of these charities and links to additional resources donors can use to make informed giving decisions.
